OK, we may not be completely finished with production on "Revengeance", there are still some minor tweaks to be made to the film here and there, but we finished a submission cut for entering festivals, so we got as many of the interns and staff members together as we could, and had a wrap party over at the Frying Pan.
If you've never been to the Frying Pan, it's a bar on a railroad barge, next to a historic Coast Guard lightship, over on Pier 66 on the west side of Manhattan. Maybe it's not the best place to go for drinks if you're vulnerable to seasickness, but it's a fun place and you just can't beat the view of the Hudson River.
We went there on a Monday, so it wouldn't be as crowded as, say, a Friday or a Saturday. They let us sit up on the raised platform, which made it a bit of a challenge to climb the stairs with drinks. We filled up a few tables with people and got ourselves some beers and food.
Wow, what a turnout! I think we had about three sets of interns show up, so for some people it was their first chance to meet nearly everyone else who worked on the film! I had to leave at some point and take Lucas home, but I heard that when my crew got off the boat, they hung out in the grass by the river and watched the sun set, I guess the evening was so much fun that nobody wanted it to end!
My thanks to the Frying Pan for hosting our wrap party, and to everyone who came out to have a few drinks! We'll make another reservation there when we finish the next film!
